Bible Heroes & Bad Guys: Nebuchadnezzar

The book of Proverbs is filled with verses that I would call “explanatory warnings,” warnings that explain the way things work in God’s universe.  Proverbs 16:18 is one of those verses.  It says, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall."  The verse is not a threat or a promise, just an explanation of how things work.  Pride goes before a fall.  Nebuchadnezzar’s pride ran so deep that even a clear warning from the Lord did not drive it from him.  It took seven years of insanity!
